‘The Stratford Upon Avon & Midland Junction Railway’ (or S.M.J.) was a small independent railway company which ran a line across the empty, untouched centre of England. It visited the counties of Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and a little of Buckinghamshire, only existing as the SMJ from 1909 to 1923. In 1923 the S.M.J.became a minor arm of the London Midland and Scottish (L.M.S.), then in 1948 'British Railways'

In reply to Simon dimensions of signal lever plate  6 × 1 -7/8 inches.   I also had the original 43520 smokebox plate , an ex  MR 3f which I think was the last engine shedded at Stratford before moving to Gloucester , and also an LMS enamel  lamp tablet  BLISWORTH , both of which I sold to some lucky person at Quorn about 20 years.  Wish I had kept them now !
